After months of speculation, Showtime confirmed today that Season 8 of its popular series Dexter will be the final season.
David Nevins, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc. said, “DEXTER is a landmark franchise for our network, and we cannot wait to unveil the conclusion of this series, as we know it, to the millions of passionate fans who have supported the show season after season. We’d like to thank Michael, Jennifer, and DEXTER ‘s indomitable cast, executive producers, writers and crew for eight incredible seasons.”
To wet the fans appetite for the final season, Showtime also released a 2 minute preview clip and from what it shows, Deb isn’t very happy with her brother!
The wait is almost over for the season 8 premiere of Dexter! So, to wet our appetites, Showtime has released the first footage of the new season along with footage from the new series Ray Donovan starring Liev Schreiber.
With the final season of Showtimes’s hit series Dexter to start on June 30th, the network has come out with the first official teaser for the new season. Leave it to Showtime to put a spin on the first promo teaser for the series. It’s more of an “In Memoriam” promo that lists all who have died during the first 7 seasons of the series. Take a look and see how many of them you remember!
While one of the premiere date announcements was not much of a surprise, the other one was a complete surprise. During the Television Critics Associations conference, the President of Showtime David Nevins, announced the premiere dates for its two hit series Homeland and Dexter.
Homeland’s third season will premiere Sunday, September 29. After a fantastic season 1 and a second season that some critics and fans didn’t think lived up to the caliber of season 1, principal cast members will be back for the third season.
The big news was the date announced for the premiere of Dexter’s eight season. The new season of Dexter will premiere Sunday June 30…months earlier than it normally premieres.
In a tale of two series coming back after different opinions on its previous season, both Dexter and Homeland will be returning on Showtime September 30th. Dexter, which many thought had one of its weakest seasons to date will premiere at 9pm EST. Recently, star Michael C. Hall signed a new 2 year extension to his contract. On the flip side, Homeland will return right after Dexter at the 10 pm time slot. Homeland stars Damian Lewis and Claire Daines and was widely considered the best drama of last year. In our opinion, it was the best drama we’ve seen in the last 10 years. President Obama is such a fan of the show, that Damian Lewis recently let it slip during an interview with BBC television host Graham Norton, that he was invited to the White House for the upcoming State Dinner with the British Prime Minister! Talk about being a fan of the show!
